City Wide Opens Territory in Orlando, Florida

City Wide Maintenance, the country’s leading franchise opportunity designed for sales and management professionals, announces it has awarded its fourth franchise in the state of Florida.

Now located in 25 markets with the single corporate location, City Wide is proud to congratulate Jay and Edna Watson as the new franchisees for City Wide of Orlando. Their exclusive territory encompasses all of the Orlando and Kissimmee metropolitan area.

The Watsons are both formerly Xerox franchisees and come from a strong sales background. They are excited to get back into focusing on client relations. “We are really looking forward to the customer centric model of City Wide,” said Jay.

“Jay and Edna have a very strong sales experience and have proven they have the tenacity to get their new venture off with a running start,” says President Jeff Oddo. “We’re very excited to start our first quarter with a wonderful new team joining our family and look forward to all of the promise they hold.”

City Wide Franchise Company offers a professional sales and management franchise opportunity within the building maintenance industry. City Wide utilizes a unique business model to cross-sell and deliver 20+ services to its commercial clients, including janitorial, carpet cleaning, window washing, parking lot maintenance and tenant improvement. This wide array of services gives each owner more than 20 different ways to open a door for potential business.

City Wide focuses exclusively on the professional, B2B market by capitalizing on the growing business trend of “outsourcing.” Auto-renewing contracts offer compounding growth within a virtually recession proof industry.

Success Stories

Jeff and I saw firsthand through my work for City Wide Franchise Corporate how this business can provide real wealth opportunities for us; there is no greater endorsement than a former employee who decides to buy a franchise from the company! With City Wide, we get to make a difference in our community, not just for ourselves and our family, but for our clients and our team. The work is rewarding because we believe in what we are doing for our clients every day.

What appealed to us about City Wide was the opportunity to work together and build a family business. No corporate bosses, no long distance travel, and the freedom to be there for our children when we want. Personal effort is directly rewarded with results and as you grow you get to share that success with an ever-growing team of direct staff, independent contractors, and happy clients.

I fell in love with the Home Office team. I believed in the concept of the model. I loved the team’s professionalism, enthusiasm, integrity, ethics and, most importantly, family values. When we left [Discovery Day] I was scared we would not be selected. We were so excited when we got the call that we had been. It has been the best decision we have ever made for our family.

What I love about this business is I am doing the same thing I was doing in corporate America, but now I am building a business for myself. Repeat contracts, no hourly employees, no more travel, in control of my own destiny… somebody pinch me!
